Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable Internet apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and a large number of online users much more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike conventional platforms which handle the info in giant chunks, it handles everything in little bits. As an illustration, if a user has to fill out a few fields on a website, Node.js processes the info in the first field once it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it truly does make a difference if a large number of users are using a website all at once. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are online dinner booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. sites that need fast live interaction.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All Linux shared hosting that we offer support Node.js and you will be able to add this advanced platform to your hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to pick the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/websites will make use of Node.js simultaneously, and you can order as many instances as you want. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to pick the precise path to your .js application and to select if you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port designated by our cloud system. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve added, edit the path to the .js application or see the output of the running instances with only a couple of clicks from your hosting Control Panel via a very simple-to-navigate GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated packages support Node.js, so in case you wish to host any real-time application on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to use the power that Node.js can offer you with only a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so if you want to use Node.js for different sites, you’ll be able to pick the number of running instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s simple-to-navigate graphical interface, you will need to insert the location of the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will designate a random port to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also enable you to check the output of each of your apps or to shut down/restart each instance separately.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is included with all dedicated hosting on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an incredibly intuitive and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you haven’t worked with Node.js before, you will be able to uncover its full potential in only a few simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will need to include the directory path to the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will allocate a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any limit on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can set up and run at the same time and you will exert full command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to add new ones or to cancel/restart existing ones, to review the output log for each application, and many others.
